This is a question First World Problems

Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

Some people have no sense of self-preservation whatsoever
I'm getting the tube into work this morning, it's 8:35 or thereabouts, and I'm joined in my carriage by a couple. A couple who think nothing of kissing each other in a crowded tube carriage as many times as they want. So inbetween Archway and Camden Town, the kiss each other about 200 times. It's like punctuation: one will say something, then they'll kiss. Then the other will say something, then they'll kiss. Then they'll kiss just to make sure, each one a big, noisy smacker.

Do these people not realise that a mere half-metre away, there is a man who is ready to take the pen from his Sudoku and ram it through their stupid fucking kissing faces? I mean, even if they had just got married that instant, there wouldn't be just cause for that sort of public display of affection. Even if she'd just let him sleep with her sister, I'd still think he was overdoing it.

I have no idea
I was too busy picturing them both beaten to a bloody pulp

Crippling sexual frustration.
Have a wank, or something. Maybe not on the tube, though.

See I sometimes get the tube in with my girlfriend
We talk, if it's particularly crowded we'll share a space, and I'll kiss her goodbye when she gets off at her stop. If it was, say, 11:30 on a Friday night, we might display a little more public affection, but there's no need to advertise to the rest of the carriage that we're having sex, is there?

You're forgetting
They invented it

What. the underground?
Impressive that they found time among all that kissing.

I have to confess, that I agree with you.
I can't stand audible kissing on TV, either. Ugh.

Or whispering
Whispering on TV drives me up the fucking wall

To be fair,
most of what's on TV is infuriating shite.

No sex please, we're British.

The Spanish have a word for it
I was on the Barcelona Metro a couple of years ago. Two very beautiful young men were sucking face with great enthusiasm in my carriage. Nobody else batted an eyelid.
